Red Day Ainsley Harriot's BBQ Jerk Chicken

Someone has just given me an Ainsley Harriot BBQ book so I started looking through ready to discard it until after my diet. To my surprise there were a few recipes which are zero/low syn or could easily be adapted to suit - this is the first:

Fuzziless Jerk Chicken
Serves 6
Syn Free on Red Day :)

6 Part Boned chicken breasts
For the sauce:
8oz onions, quartered
2 habaneros or scotch bonnet chillies, halved and seeded
2oz fresh root ginger, peeled and roughly chopped
1/2 tsp ground allspice
the leaves from 1/2 oz fresh thyme sprigs
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
120ml (4 fl oz) white wine vinegar
120ml (4 fl oz) dark soy sauce

  1. Put all the ingredients for the sauce into a food processor and whizz until smooth.
  2. Place the chicken in a large shallow dish, pour over the sauce, cover and leave to marinate in the fridge for 24 hours, turning the chicken every now and then
  3. Barbecue the chicken breasts over medium-hot coals for 25-30 minutes basting now and then with leftover sauce. As it cooks the thick sauce will go quite black in places, but as it falls off it will leave behind a really well flavoured, crisp skin, with lovely moist tender meat underneath.
